A complete African safari themed adventure treasure hunt - all ready to be downloaded, printed and set up. This complete package includes five, ready to be set up adventure treasure hunt clues and puzzles - for five separate locations in your treasure hunt.

This hunt is not a bunch of random word searches and paper mazes..The whole adventure treasure hunt is bound together by a central story: The year is 1932 and when Professor James Witherspoon goes missing in the wilds of Africa, his daughter Jenny makes an attempt to save him...with the help of your adventure hunt participants! Just fill in the locations specific to your playing area or city, make the needed copies and you are ready to go.

Already working on a treasure hunt of your own? No problem, these puzzles were cleverly designed to be inserted into a treasure hunt of your own, as well. Use just one or use all five. Think of each set of puzzle and clues as a boxcar to a train (the train being the treasure hunt you are planning) - connect them to each other as boxcars would on a train. You can use any number of them that you'd like and you can put them in any order you'd like, to ensure that you have the maximum amount of flexibility in your planning. They are the 'legos' of treasure hunt building!

Each puzzle is a mini activity making every stop along the way fun. At each stop the adventurers will need to search around the room/area looking for the needed clues to solve the puzzle. Once all of the clues are found, the puzzle can be solved and they'll be off again to another location on your hunt.

Five different African jungle themed adventure treasure hunt puzzles - in ready to copy format once your locations are written in
One requiring putting events in chronological order - When Nabhani the guide returns with news about the professor, the messages get all rearranged. It could reveal where the professor was last seen...if only they could be put in the correct order...
One requiring the piecing together of a worn note - a note in a bottle is found floating down the Luaulaba River and the professor's daughter is convinced that it was written with her father's hand. Could this be just the piece of information that they are looking for?
One requiring assembling pieces to a map - Fallu, the professor's guide, appears from the bush all battered and bruised. He has news that the professor is in danger. He marked on a map where he escaped...but where did the pieces of the map end up?
One requiring decoding - A fellow researcher sees some strange markings on a rock unlike anything he's ever seen - could this be a message left behind by the professor?
One requiring deduction - Poor Richard Davenport, a colleague of Witherspoon, has the heart to help but not the memory. He traveled all about the region and missed only one location...but which one?
Instructions for setting up the hunt.
A starter and final story sheet to launch and close out the adventure.

PLUS - a short excerpt from the Ultimate Jungle Theme Party with ideas for decorating your final location in the hunt like a jungle using commonly found items!

PLUS - A SIXTH BONUS PUZZLE - If you choose to use all five puzzles in your adventure treasure hunt, you have the option to incoprorate a SIXTH and final puzzle (also included!) which uses the answers to the other five to complete! A great way to end the hunt and to make sure that your participants successfully completed all the puzzles!



These unique set of treasure hunt puzzles were created by treasure hunt designer Joe Dean, with over 20 years of professional adventure design experience behind him. The clever versatility built into the adventure treasure hunt allows it to be set up inside a home, on church grounds, over an entire baseball stadium, throughout an entire city...anywhere you'd like as long as each location on your treasure hunt is unique (no repeat locations for stops.) Their design also allows maximum flexibility in time duration. Would you like it to last 15 minutes? Would you like it to last three hours? You are able to make those decisions based on your available and desired time frame by either using more/less puzzles or hiding the clues to the puzzles in more challenging/easier places.

Recommended Ages - The entire family was thought of in the overall design of this treasure hunt puzzles package. Because there are multiple aspects to each puzzle (searching for physical clues, solving of the puzzle, etc.) multiple ages can enjoy themselves. The younger participants will have fun searching for the clues while the older participants can focus on solving the puzzle. The puzzles themselves are not overly challenging, once all the clues are found that is. Adults down to children age 10 (approx.) typically have no problem solving the puzzles. Ages 8-9 might need an adult handy to 'unstick' them should they get stuck at any part. Children younger than 8 should can participate as part of a team, being able to contribute as the team searches for the clues. (PLEASE NOTE: The age recommendations just offered are the culmination of offering these puzzles online for the past 10 years, but are still only estimates as each child's individual problem solving skills is different.)

NOTHING MORE NEEDS TO BE PURCHASED. Everything you need to facilitate the adventure treasure hunt is included in this download.
